Long Live the Viking Lifestyle!

According to the Democrat Caucus, we should NOT be allowed to defend ourselves, because TOO many people are being shot.
 The Congressional Progressive Caucus has announced it will introduce legislation designed to strip Americans of the right to defend themselves. Called “Stop Shoot First Laws,” the amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill under consideration in the House would deny states federal funding allocated under section 505 of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 if they continue to allow citizens to defend themselves.

“Shoot first laws have already cost too many lives,” said Progressive Caucus co-chairs Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva upon introducing their amendment. “In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted. Federal money shouldn’t be spent supporting states with laws that endanger their own people. This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don’t enforce seatbelt laws.”

“The message here is if you have this kind of law that your federal funding is going to take a hit because they make states less safe,” Adam Sarvana, communications director for Grijalva, told Politico.

In other words, the Democrats will force states to choose between putting their citizens at the mercy of violent criminals or taking federal largess.

Because the House does not have an open amendment process, the amendment will likely not see a vote on the floor. Ellison and Grijalva introduced the amendment in and effort to further politicize the Trayvon Martin case and increase pressure on the Second Amendment.
But...wait...aren't the people being shot under Stand Your Ground, being shot BECAUSE they are ATTACKING someone, committing a crime, raping, robbing and pillaging?!  This move would make it tantamount to creating a country where openly attacking, robbing, or murdering is legal, but defending yourself against the same, would be all but illegal.  These bastards are NUTS!!

If they believe this, then let's DISBAND the Secret Service and take away all their hardened vehicles.  If defending ourselves is wrong, then the SS defending them is wrong!

Rep. Keith Ellison is a radical Leftist and black Mooselamb from Chicago, so it's not surprising that he would want to protect his hommies from having to pay a price for their violent crimes.

What the American sheeple need to understand is that, their RIGHT to defend themselves comes from God, not congress. Every living thing on this planet has a God-given right to defend itself from harm. Plants, birds, insects, and every species of animal all have their own ways of protecting themselves. Are we to be told that humans are excluded? If we buy into that, then we deserve to be victims.

If all else fails, remember this; "i'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6..."

That's my mantra.

When I told my wife this before she left this morning she said she thought it was the most stupid thing she ever heard. And that from a woman who's been married to ME for almost 40 years!

She knows stupid my friend!

The amazing thing is that enough people took this legislation serious enough to put it on paper.

December 23...or is it the 22nd? it will be an interesting day, that is for sure.
